Recently I had a whole day to myself to work on quilts. So I decided to try out my new batik pen (see #2 here). I started out with a 24 x 20″ piece of white Kona Cotton and played around to see what it could do. I was so pleased with the results that I decided to turn it into a finished quilt.
Here’s the top, ready for quilting and embellishing: The side borders are a case of measure twice but cut some random too-short length that has nothing whatsoever to do with what I measured at all. Don’t you love it when mistakes make things turn out better than they would have been otherwise?
Here’s a detail of my doodling. I melted broken crayon bits to make the lines, then filled in the empty spaces with watered-down acrylic paints. I wonder if I would have been so carefree if I had known I was going to turn it into something in the end?
